Has anyone heard of this new vaccine, developed by Cleveland Clinic, for triple-negative breast cancer?

Key Takeaways

  • The FDA has approved a triple-negative breast cancer vaccine for use in human clinical trials.
  • The vaccine was developed by researchers at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio and works by training the immune system to kill cells that express the protein alpha-lactalbumin.
  • The technology used to develop the vaccine could be applicable to cancers beyond breast cancer as well.
